This is a story often used to be told for taxis how the drivers witness prostitutes and drug dealers all the time. However, this made sense because there are no paper trail and they can take them freely. All taxi drivers know this that all shady transportations occur on a taxi.
Now, for Uber, that isn't the case. There is indeed a paper trail. Including timestamp, name, CC, the route taken, etc. So I am thinking those criminals are NOT taking Uber. In other words, this driver is blowing smoke.
Like a dog with poor hearing, you have to yell at it multiple times for it to respond.
This totally reminds me of that article that said "A girl gets kidnapped by an Uber driver" but the truth was that she was drunk waiting for an Uber and got on some random dude's car.
It's in question whether the kidnapper was actually pretending to be an Uber driver.
I meant it like how the drivers can specify to the users that the rider MUST be quiet. (or they get tossed out or something.
Come to think about it, maybe it can be arranged so it helps both sides. Bringing together the drivers and riders who both prefer silence.
What about a little twist? What if the *DRIVERS* have the "opt-out" button. We call it the "QUIET CAR."
1. If the Uber driver cancelled our trip early and dropped us at that location, would it still show my home address as the destination (If I did in fact enter my home address) or would it show where we were dropped
Technically the driver cannot "cancel" a trip. He or she can "Complete the Ride." Wherever you were dropped off, becomes the new end point of your trip. So the short answer is yes.
The original destination you entered will still be a part of the request. You should be able to look it up in the history. I am pretty sure about this, but I haven't had this happen to me, so I am not sure. I think the basic rule is that everything is logged with Uber, so I am sure you can look this up. Ask your friend to look in her app. In fact, tell her to look at the receipt in her email.
2. Any reasons why my friend logically would be charged for this "phoney trip" but not for her actual trip home
The "trip" you will be charged for whatever the route your Uber driver took unfortunately. If the driver went in the opposite direction and dropped you an hour away, you will actually be charged that price. This is to make it convenient for customers who prefer to either change the ride or to take a different route. (How often did you start a ride, but you wanted to go somewhere else or be dropped off sooner. ...or wanted the driver to drive around the block.)
3. Is it even possible for Uber to enter that by accident
Not sure what you mean for thi sone.
Yeah, I hate the pretend-surprised smug look on those people. Usually from the suits who think they are important.
Not sure why they find it annoying to be told to be safe. It's something that can save lives.
It's a joke.
Here you go. Looks like there's Grab all over the place. Cheapaer than a taxi too.
Excellent idea. Unfortunate outcome. What irony.
Maybe they’re referring to the choices in Spotify. The free version can be frustrating while the Premium has millions of choices that I bet people would expect. $9.99 a month.
I have it. Totally worth it. Amazon and Apple has similar premium options too.
So Uber is supposed to be safer with gps and all. Why do these crooks think they get away with this? or do they just simply not think it through?
Haha, sorry. I didn’t mean to sound snide. But no, I don’t have a landline. Cut the wire many years ago. In fact, I don’t even have cable TV anymore.
These parents are complete idiots. They were the irresponsible ones who didn't drive the kids or prepare a ride for them. They broke the rules.
Now, they are up and arms about this poor driver. These are the type of people who can't accepte that sometimes it's their fault.
Nobody went to jail for this? Once again, the money took care of everything Uber must find it so easy
“Uber not only waited a year to disclose the breach — which exposed names, email addresses and phone numbers of 57 million people around the world — but also paid $100,000 to the hackers to keep the incident quiet.“
Mine is 4.73 and I can see the Schedule Button.
I've used it in the city, I've used it in the suburbs, and I've used it everywhere, Sam I am.
Why did my Uber driver take pictures of my girlfriend puking?
Took me a minute to find this. I searched for "girlfriend", and I was surprised to see there are LOTS of rideshare and girlfriend topics.
I do a lot of things for $150 and that is one of them. I'd let someone throw up on my head for $150. Every day.
Imagine, if that was your daily routine. Wake up, get thrown up on, collect $150 pay check. Then you get to do whatever you want (hopefully after a shower), until the next day.
Maybe they will all act as a cushion and save a life.
So basically, you are saying Uber was the way he created his network and found his prospective buyers.
Networking. I never thought of that.
